Stories from the Stars

Free Try-Out Edition
for Robert De Niro [Adb], born on 17 August 1943
Text by B.Brady & D.Gunzburg, Copyright © Astrodienst AG 2018
I. Introduction

This short extract allows you to get a taste of your personal horoscope "Stories from the Stars" by Bernadette Brady and Darrelyn Gunzburg. Small samples taken from the individual chapters will give you a glimpse of the horoscope as a whole, which comprises approximately 25-32 pages, and can be ordered as an E-Horoscope or bound booklet in the Astroshop.

The vault of the heavens is a lacework of stars that people find awe inspiring. The starry sky, however, is more than just beautiful. It also carries wisdom contained within stories.

This report explores those stories. It offers you information that enables you to actively work with your stars. Its aim is to help you understand how the stars contribute to your actions, your choices and your attitudes. For by understanding the role of the stars in your life you can step upon a path that allows you to be in greater harmony with them.

This star report contains three sections – the stars that shape your character, the stars that shape your vocation, and the stars that shape the journey of your life.


II. The Stars that Shape your Character

This chapter describes certain qualities that your stars contribute to your personality. They show themselves in your life through parans - a connection of this star with your birth chart. The five stars discussed in the full report can be gifts as well as challenges for you to work with and profit from.

This is the starting point for discovering your stars. Your journey begins with focusing on the stars and their myths that add their unique qualities to your character. Star qualities are particular features that contribute to your seed potential. They become apparent as your skills and resources through your life's experiences, for it is only by using them to deal with problems that you discover the potentials they offer you and how you can handle them wisely.


image Denebola in the Lion

Denebola is the bright white star at the tip of the tail of Leo, the lion. Although the constellation of the lion is associated with all that is brave and regal, this star in the lion's tail represents that which has been marginalised, ignored, disregarded or overlooked. The lion was one of Hercules' labours in his mission to remove any non-mainstream religions or thinking from the Greek countryside. Although he was successful in doing this the star in the tail of the lion [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses five stars and five parans, which are the star's connections to your personal birth chart.


III. The Stars that Shape your Vocation

The third chapter of this horoscope gives you information on the stars that are connected with themes you care and feel passionate about in the world, with your vocation.

The themes of your vocation stars are fundamental to your idea of what you stand for and what is important to you and how you spend your life, far more than just your job or career. It could, however, become your career or surface in your life as your passion or a cause to which you devote your free time. Hence your vocational stars suggest how you can lead a meaningful life. Pursuing the themes suggested by these stars may not bring you riches but they will allow you to feel that you are in your proper place, living a life of purpose. No matter what other paths you take in your life, your vocation stars will always pull you back to their themes.


image Acubens in the Crab

Acubens is a small white star in the southern claw of Cancer the crab. It held importance long ago as the constellation where the sun reached its longest day and captures this mythology by being linked with the fertility of the seasons, the cycles of life and death and life again. It was also known as the Gate of Men and was thought to be the place where souls entered into the earth's material realms. In today's world the expressions of Acubens can vary from indicating a [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses two stars and parans.


IV. The Star Stories in Your Life

The star stories in this chapter contain different themes and characters that you recognize and identify with, at different times and to different degrees. Knowing them allows you to use their resources consciously rather than following them blindly.

Your star stories are the narrative which provides the stage for your star qualities and your vocation stars. Some of these stories come from the stars and will make themselves apparent through re-occurring patterns of events. Knowing your star stories enables you to be alert at the beginning of the cycle before you find yourself slipping into old habit patterns with their predictable outcomes.

Sensing the Divine: Yearning for the enchanted world image

This is the story of two celestial birds, the heavenly swan, Cygnus, and the vulture that carries Orpheus' lyre in its beak, the same lyre which could tame wild animals. With these birds' ability to fly between earth and sky, they bridge worlds - the mundane practical world and the virtual world of dreams, desires, and wholeness. The swan, it was said, flew so high it was thought to reach the realm of the immortal gods, while the vulture carried the souls of the dead to heaven for eventual rebirth. So with [...]

[..] Whether you pursue this interest through direct action or through music or the arts, the driving force behind you is one of compassion or environmental concern. If, however, this is thrown out of balance in any way, then you step back from your active role, idealistically hoping that another person or [...]

In the full version, this chapter discusses three star stories and five parans.

V. Conclusion

In the face of the starry heavens you may feel that you are small, but by understanding your personal relationship with the stars, you can step upon a path that allows you to gain a greater harmony with them. This harmony can give you insights about what it is to be a part of a living cosmos. As you come to understand your stars through this report, go outside on a clear night and learn to see your stars in the night sky. Visually connecting with them can help you to understand their union with your life.
